Student Centered Components
For both undergraduate and graduate students across all partner institutions, there is an emphasis on developing the strong mentoring that is necessary to help students succeed academically and professionally. All students will be supported by up to five mentors: a faculty mentor to guide research practice, a writing mentor to improve scientific communication skills, an online mentor at one of the other partner institutions, a NOAA scientist mentor, and a peer mentor who has recently gone through the experiences the new student is facing. Co-advising of thesis projects by NOAA scientists will strengthen student and faculty development. Where necessary, students will be provided with the means to make frequent trips to NOAA labs for data collection and consultations.

The ISET mentoring and seminars programs include elements designed to develop student leadership skills. ISET students benefit from the expertise of faculty in NC A&T's Leadership Doctoral Program. This program has a close relationship with the Center for Creative Leadership. The Center for Creative Leadership is the leading nonprofit institution dedicated exclusively to leadership. It integrates cutting-edge research with innovative training, coaching, assessment and publishing to create proven impact for leaders and organizations around the world.
Capstone design problems involving NOAA related science are being developed. Some of these problems will be available on this site soon.
Courses will begin development during spring 2007. First offerings are expected during fall 2007.
